Damn! That's a steal! Now I'm tempted to buy a kit, but I want to build an AR before they're banned and I just bought a gun last night so... decisions, decisions!

Soze how did you acquire such a valueable coup?! If I could pull the same thing off with the UDR I’d feel a lot better about the price tag. Congrats on the purchase dude!

Jato a kit ain’t a bad idea either. Hmm.

I printed myself a license plate. I like that it has a double meaning - Leaf Spring Mafia, of course, but also LS, like the Chevy engine, to piss off the Ford fans.



I added the SSD black rear hubs. I'm not sure if I like them. They remind me of the stock, black rear hubs on the heavier duty truck. But I might switch to silver or raw aluminum. The black hubs will stay for now.

I thought about it. Haven't seen it done by anybody else at this point.

Thanks!

I never remembered the stock rear hubs having red centers. Apparently they did so the stock Traxxas hubs aren't too far off. I didn't like the black rear hubs so I changed them to red. Much better.

I didnt think so either but then I found a pic of my old '96. Sho 'nuf, red rear hub covers. The wheels on my '96 are the same as on the TRX-4. They were an option in '96, but I dont think that style wheel existed in '78...

The wheel Traxxas used didn't exist back in 78-79. Most of the Broncos came with white wagon wheels, or some mag Cragers I think. Never the wheels that come on the Traxxas. Guess Traxxas figured they would sell more with the wheel bling they put on. lol

There are license plate creators online. I used one of those and printed it on adhesive paper at home. Simple really.

The 10 hole aluminum wheels were an option on the Bronco in both 1978 and 1979 and also on the F150, but this wheel style, in general, was popular back then. If you search the internet there are a ton of 78-79 Broncos with wheels similar to the ones that Traxxas put on the TRX-4.

I agree these are newer wheels. But they're similar to the ones that come on the TRX-4 Bronco.

While I will admit, they are close. But, as mentioned, the rivets added and a slightly different chrome was updated for the 90's vehicles.

Either way, still looks good. Back in the day, I usually saw just the wagon wheels or mags.

I was born in 77 so the heyday of the 78 and 79 Broncos were early in my life. Wagon wheels were everywhere when I was a kid. The hole wheels with rivets, from what I remember, were crazy popular in the 90's. My 95 S-10 came with them from the factory.
